Very strange. I tried it here (installed 5.1.22 and when I started it, 
it instantly did an update check and told me that a new package with 
version 5.1.24 is available). Which exact VirtualBox package are you 
using? I can guess it's a Linux one, but we provide over 30 variants and 
that's not visible in the screenshot. The most accurate way would be 
looking at VBox.log for some VM you ran recently. At around line 10 it 
contains "Package type: ..." - getting this would eliminate any guessing 
on both sides.
